Ride Between the Rivers 50 mile ride
 
This Saturday was the Ride Between the Rivers, which takes place in Ellamore, WV. This is one of my favorite rides every season and this year did not disappoint!

Camp is in a massive field, with a river with a great swimming hole beside it. Plenty of space for everyone.

The ride is notorious for being hot, humid, and full of climbs. This year was no different. The start was a bit delayed due to the fog, which became stifling humidity in the daylight. High temps were in the lower 90s and I don't want to think about what the heat index likely was.

At the end of the day, Dream and I placed second and got Best Conditioned!!

Could not be more proud of her. We had company the first loop (18 miles), then rode the rest of the ride alone.
